Workplace Injuries

Injuries that occur on the job are common occurrences and most are minor, but some result in severe injuries that leave you unable to work. Overexertion, transportation accidents, poorly maintained equipment and repetitive motion are all cause of workplace injuries. Workplace injuries are often the result of failure to provide proper training to employees, faulty equipment, or negligence by employers who fail to follow safety standards set forth by OSHA.

Your employer is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in order to help you with medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of the cause. By Florida law, you will need to see a doctor chosen by the insurance company that insures your employer.

Many of these physicians are under contract to the insurance company and will choose the most inexpensive treatment option, but that may not always be the best for you. In some cases, insurance companies refuse to pay for surgeries that their own doctors have recommended.

When you have been hurt and you need a strategic, knowledgeable advocate by your side, Sam Coffey and his team of trial lawyers will aggressively pursue your claim for benefits that the insurance company can’t ignore. Know you are not alone. Call Coffey McPharlin at 954-371-0704. Let us seek justice for you.
